The experienced Netherlands national team boss was finally announced as the successor to the recently sacked David Moyes in the Old Trafford hot seat on Monday afternoon, with Van Gaal agreeing to put pen to paper on a bumper three-year deal with the Red Devils.

And despite the fact that Van Gaal will not actually be able to take up the reins in the north west until after the end of this summer’s Fifa World Cup finals in July, the former Ajax, FC Barcelona and Bayern trainer is believed to have already compiled a short list of transfer targets that he wants the club’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward to pursue when the window reopens for business.

At the top of the Dutchman’s wish list is said to be the name of the Netherlands international, a player that Van Gaal knows well from their time working together at both the Allianz Arena and with the Dutch national team.
